App Spotlight: Curate The Perfect Instagram Feed

I’ve talked about the Plann App many times here on the blog and on instagram. I’ve been using it for the past 2 years and it has not only helped me grow my instagram but it helps me keep my feed looking consistent as well.

When I first started using it, I had the free version until I felt comfortable using it. I now have the Premium version which allows you to maintain up to 3 accounts. If you just have one main account and looking to step your IG game up, I suggest the Basic plan for $5 per month.

Once you join, it can tell you what type of post do well with your audience, when your best times to post are and it will give you a color scheme based off your images. I tell my clients everyday to figure out a consistent way to catch the eyes of their followers and come up with a brand color scheme.

Using a color scheme on Instagram and in general is a clever way to show off your brand and become recognizable. Other brand recognition tips are using a post pattern (such as picture, quote, picture) or by always using the same filter on photos.

Not only can you schedule post with captions for IG but you can schedule your IG stories too. You put the day and time you want the post to go out and a notification will let you know when it’s time to send it off. I also love that you can save and categorize your hashtags. The app will also let you know which hashtags are doing well for you and which ones aren’t.

P.S. Instagram allows you to use 30 hashtags per post. That’s 30 ways to market yourself to others. I kind of never pass up the opportunity to use all 30.

I dare you to try the free version for two weeks everyday and see how it works for you. Interested in a brand audit from me. I’ll give you a break down of apps to use, suggestions, tips and more so you can get an idea of what to do to keep your brand looking consistent on your website and social media. Just contact me.
